When I was in Spreewald, my friend, Juliane, helped me make these candy cones! In Germany they are called, schultuete, meaning "school cones." It was really fun to see how the first day of school is such a big deal in Germany. Every kid gets one of these candy cones and it's been a tradition for a long time! I think it's such an adorable idea for the first day of school, for a party or even a wedding. You can see the instructions over at Project Wedding.
